WE ARE THE TEAM AT NEW SELF
Specializing in Functional Health & Wellness
Jill Hietpas, PA-C, MPAS & Brian Thiry, FHC are co-founders of New Self, LLC. A Functional Health & Wellness team who specialize in gut health for high achieving men and women that want to feel young and vibrant in all aspects of life.
As experts in gut health we provide our clients with insight on:
- An understanding of what it means to have poor gut health and recognize how poor gut health is tied to 80-90% of all health conditions
- An understanding of the factors that are causing poor gut health
- An understanding of what changes to make to appropriately heal your gut to optimize your personal and professional life
Our passion for this work runs deep. We understand advocating for your own health can be challenging with limited support. We both have suffered through our own health issues which have hindered our professional and family lives. After years of failing with conventional medicine our individual health journeys led us both to Functional Medicine. Our goals are simple, help others so they too do not go through the experiences we have, knowing you are in control and can make changes to get to a healthier happier place and Thrive again!!

A little more about Jill
Jill has over 22 years of experience as a Board Certified Physician Assistant. Jill's passion to help others began at an early age when her father fell severely ill when Jill was just 12 years old. Jill and her mother nursed her father back to health; this care for her father ignited a passion to help others and is the core reasoning as to why Jill pursued a career as a Physician Assistant. As Jill worked a very successful career as Physician Assistant working with an extremely respected Neurosurgeon and Neurosurgery private practice, she found herself struggling with symptoms that were greatly impacting her personal and professional life. Jill pursued countless appointments with traditional providers to help her with addressing her significant loss of energy, hair loss, rosacea, and food sensitivities. Each appointment led her to more and more medication to simply mask the symptom rather than treating the root issue. After years of struggling, Jill decided to pursue Functional Medicine options for answers. What she both learned and discovered is Functional Medicine was the answer. Within months of addressing the root cause she noticed significant impact to the issues she was experiencing. Since that experience, Jill has pursued Functional Medicine as a career. Jill's passion with helping others continues, however, her interests are to pursue the 'cause' as to why something is happening rather than treating the symptom related to the cause. Jill believes that everyone should have the knowledge and power to so they can be an advocate for their own health.
